The Firestone recall of 6.5 million tires set many people to worrying about their safety. Others started worrying about the safety of their Firestone stock. But we're worried about something almost as important: Once all 6.5 million tires are collected, what will they do with the things? Can we, as a nation, possibly wear all the black rubber sandals that will come from recycling so many tires? And recycling is important, because tires never die. According to Science News Online, 265 million tires are discarded each year; most end up in landfills and vacant lots, where they live for eternity.

Dyables, evening, high-heel, mid-heel, low-heel, casual flats, juniors, clogs, junior clogs, open-toed, boots, comfort sandals, junior sandals, beachwear, fashion athletics, court athletics, running, cross-training and golf. And that's just for women. Twenty-nine thousand square feet of shoes. Thirty thousand pairs. Twelve hundred styles. Not one at the insistent ache of full retail. A massive buffet for happy feet. "My closet is filled with shoes," says Christine Adler, an executive assistant from Roxborough, on the hunt at Plymouth Meeting Metroplex's Designer Shoe Warehouse - DSW to regulars - on Chemical Road, a place that sounds like a Bruce Springsteen song but is really a grove of big-box stores in the shade of the Blue Route.

DINOSAUR EGGS FACING EXTINCTION - AGAIN A treasure trove of fossilized dinosaur eggs is being threatened because Chinese officials are allowing farmers to dig up and carry away the precious rocks, Beijing's Xinhua Daily Telegraph reported yesterday. The report came as Beijing residents flocked to an exhibition on dinosaurs that included models from the hit film Jurassic Park. More than 100 fossil eggs had been stored by officials in Quzhou city in eastern Zhejiang province since 1970, but there was no way to count the large number of eggs lost to farmers, the newspaper said.

Unleash yourself from the Miracle Suit, beach bunnies. The coolest bathing attire at the Jersey shore this summer is the comically named Tankini. The "ini" part of the name comes from our old friend, the bikini. The bottom of this two-piece trendsetter is a traditional bikini brief. The top, however, is an ode to shy midriffs everywhere: a tight tank top that, mercifully, falls just shy of the bikini brief. "They're very hot," said Leah Rosenkrantz, of Talk of the Towne, a popular bathing-suit store in Margate.

Don't have enough cash to purchase the bangin' ensembles you need to freshen up your warm-weather wardrobe? Not to worry, you need only mix in a few choice pieces to achieve spring's powerful, yet playfully girly look.

Fashionable shoes have been anything but comfortable in recent years. Toe-pinching, pointy pumps - ouch! Wobbly, three-inch stilettos - double ouch! Non-cushioned arches - ouch, ouch, ouch! Well, it appears fashion is throwing our tired feet a bone. The trendlet The chunky-heel sandal. It may be high, but with a heel that ranges from a little chunky (three-quarters of an inch) to uber chunky (a little over two inches wide), this footwear gives a girl height and balance. And if the platform features a soft insole, it's likely she won't have to pack flats in her bag. The open-toe, chunky heel also is lovingly being referred to as the city sandal because there is no chance the heels on these bad boys will get hung up in sidewalk grates.

On many levels, designer Marc Jacobs is a genius in America's ready-to-wear fashion industry. And the ticket to his show is the most coveted of Fashion Week. We know he will surprise. We expect him to give us a new silhouette, possibly even confuse us. So the world's premier fashionistas waited Monday night outside the New York State Armory, eager to get into Jacobs' show. As the 9 p.m. start time dragged out toward 11:04 p.m., we sat there on uncomfortable steel benches, intrigued by what appeared to be broken windows shooting up from the runway.

In a confrontational conclusion to the U.S. Senate Democratic primary debates, Bob Casey Jr. and his two challengers last night sparred over the role of special interests in politics, the Iraq war, and which one of them would be best able to defeat the incumbent, Rick Santorum (R., Pa.). For almost two hours in a college gymnasium, Casey kept his focus on Santorum while Bucks County professor Chuck Pennacchio and Center City lawyer Alan Sandals escalated their attacks on the front-runner, attempting to draw differences with Casey on foreign and domestic issues.

Although the bean-counters and abacus-pushers at Warner Bros. won't cop to an exact figure, word is that Troy, Wolfgang Petersen's Iliad-inspired megaproduction, cost in the vicinity of $200 million. Whether Brad Pitt's bare backside will help to recoup said expense is a question for this opening weekend's box office to foretell, but just as Troy followed the Oscar-glomming sword-and-sandals saga Gladiator to the big screen, likewise more epic undertakings of a historical nature are in the works.
